primitive_convert(p1, p2, p3 = v3, p4 = v4, p5 = v5, p6 = {}) public

possible opt elements:

hash form:
  :partial_input => true           # source buffer may be part of larger source
  :after_output => true            # stop conversion after output before input
integer form:
  Encoding::Converter::PARTIAL_INPUT
  Encoding::Converter::AFTER_OUTPUT

possible results:

:invalid_byte_sequence
:incomplete_input
:undefined_conversion
:after_output
:destination_buffer_full
:source_buffer_empty
:finished

primitive_convert converts source_buffer into destination_buffer.

source_buffer should be a string or nil. nil means a empty string.

destination_buffer should be a string.

destination_byteoffset should be an integer or nil. nil means the end of destination_buffer. If it is omitted, nil is assumed.

destination_bytesize should be an integer or nil. nil means unlimited. If it is omitted, nil is assumed.

opt should be nil, a hash or an integer. nil means no flags. If it is omitted, nil is assumed.

primitive_convert converts the content of source_buffer from beginning and store the result into destination_buffer.

destination_byteoffset and destination_bytesize specify the region which the converted result is stored. destination_byteoffset specifies the start position in destination_buffer in bytes. If destination_byteoffset is nil, destination_buffer.bytesize is used for appending the result. destination_bytesize specifies maximum number of bytes. If destination_bytesize is nil, destination size is unlimited. After conversion, destination_buffer is resized to destination_byteoffset + actually produced number of bytes. Also destination_buffer’s encoding is set to destination_encoding.

primitive_convert drops the converted part of source_buffer. the dropped part is converted in destination_buffer or buffered in Encoding::Converter object.

primitive_convert stops conversion when one of following condition met.

  • invalid byte sequence found in source buffer (:invalid_byte_sequence)

  • unexpected end of source buffer (:incomplete_input) this occur only when :partial_input is not specified.

  • character not representable in output encoding (:undefined_conversion)

  • after some output is generated, before input is done (:after_output) this occur only when :after_output is specified.

  • destination buffer is full (:destination_buffer_full) this occur only when destination_bytesize is non-nil.

  • source buffer is empty (:source_buffer_empty) this occur only when :partial_input is specified.

  • conversion is finished (:finished)

example:

ec = Encoding::Converter.new("UTF-8", "UTF-16BE")
ret = ec.primitive_convert(src="pi", dst="", nil, 100)
p [ret, src, dst] #=> [:finished, "", "\x00p\x00i"]

ec = Encoding::Converter.new("UTF-8", "UTF-16BE")
ret = ec.primitive_convert(src="pi", dst="", nil, 1)
p [ret, src, dst] #=> [:destination_buffer_full, "i", "\x00"]
ret = ec.primitive_convert(src, dst="", nil, 1)
p [ret, src, dst] #=> [:destination_buffer_full, "", "p"]
ret = ec.primitive_convert(src, dst="", nil, 1)
p [ret, src, dst] #=> [:destination_buffer_full, "", "\x00"]
ret = ec.primitive_convert(src, dst="", nil, 1)
p [ret, src, dst] #=> [:finished, "", "i"]
